Time is flying so fast. Everything seems to happen yesterday, but actually I have been here for two years. I came to Auckland in September 2017, and I joined Structus in November. This is my first job in New Zealand, starting my new career as a structural drafter.
I am lucky because Structus is really a great team working together. Doing the work, I have learned a lot from every team member. I know that as long as I ask for help, I will always get more than what I want.
It is an exciting job as I have the opportunity to learn new structural design ideas which are quite different from what I could do as an engineer in China. I have gained a lot knowledge about precast concrete, timber structures and member connection ideas.
It’s really interesting to learn to use Revit, and now I have confidence with my 2D skills in Revit. I understand that 3D model set-up is a big challenge, but it does not take long to overcome. I’m thankful to my drafting colleagues for assisting me with developing my Revit skills.
My feelings of working at Structus. Four words: Lucky, exciting, happy and thankful.
